Stanley Joe Proctor, 67, of Kenwood, passed away on Tuesday, July 21, 2020 at his home. He was born on July 9, 1953 in Kenwood; the son of Roy and Ruffie (Wickliffe) Proctor. At the age of 19, he married the love of his life, Amy Colston, on April 19, 1973 in Jay, Oklahoma. Stanley has lived in the Kenwood area all of his life and was a member of the Cloud’s Creek Baptist Church. He loved being outside and when you came to visit Stanley, you would most likely find him outside, cleaning up his yard, working on the outside of his home, or riding on his riding lawn mower. He loved going fishing and spending time with his grandchildren. When he wasn’t spending time outdoors, you would be able to find him in his room listening to music. He always looked forward to phone calls from his family and friends and having long conversations with them. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend who leaves behind many wonderful memories.
